For several weeks now I have been working on a new book. I will tell you more about it later. Anyway, I have been very hard at it. While I am researching and writing I ususally have a tape recording for Pentecostal Gold. One day I lost track of time and when I checked the tape it had been playing for 7 hours. I realized I had not been out of my desk chair for seven hours. I'm getting too old for this.

Lynda and I were in Topeka, Kansas and preached at Harvest Family Center. This is a Four Sqare Church pastored by special friends Reye and Alice Rodriguez. Already in 2021 I have preached at an Elim Church, a Four Square Church and a Church of God. The Lord has a big family.
I did some research at the Topeka State Historical Society and Lynda and I visited the site of the Stone's Mansion where the Holy Spirit revival began in 1901. The building burned later that year and no one knew that anything was left of the building. A Catholic institution now stands on the property. Lee Defendorf discovered another house was built over the original basement of Stone's Folly. He was kind enough to let us in the basement and gave us a tour. Thank you, Lee.
I also took Lynda to see the original building for Charles Parham's Bethel Healing Home in downtown Topeka.

We preached at New Song Church of God in Chickasha, OK today. The pastor is Chuck Davis. Chuck's parents attended the church we pastored in Comanche when he was a teenager. Chuck's dad was one fine donut maker.

JanuarOn Sunday February 7 I preached at the Wembledon Elim Pentecostal Church in London. Well, I preached in my living room, but the video was shown in London. One of my students, Jon Featherstone is the pastor of this great church.

January was an exceptionally quiet month for us. We had no scheduled services, but I worked on Pentecostal Gold and other ministry projects.
One of my greatest heroes of the faith, Evangelist Charles Ogdon, passed in late December and was buried on January 4. Brother Ogdon held a 3 week revival in Comanche in 1967 that forever changed my life. I believe he was the greatest "church" evangelist that ever lived.
